An .htaccess file is a text file which contains directives which tell a server how to act in certain occasions. It must be placed into the folder in which these directives should be performed. A lot of script-driven apps employ this sort of a file to function efficiently - WordPress and Joomla, for instance. You can use such a file with custom made content too and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or certain Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages which will be displayed rather than the server-generated ones in case a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to a new web address, create a password-protected area and much more. With an .htaccess file, you'll have much better control over your world-wide web presence.
